Coach Notes

The swim coach was asked to define any shorthand he or she used in this workout. Their notes should provide some additional context to this swimming workout.

frk=free kick
spk=sprint kick
have been working with this group on keeping a low stroke count and pushing to get off the wall how far they would like to in their 200
pulling with buoy at ankle helps promote strong body line.
